Two Sessions
       8:30 AM – 11:30 AM  - The Changing Face of Dental Hygiene:                  An Expert Clinician, Skilled Motivator & Prevention Specialist (3 CE) 

As we observe the reorganization of healthcare delivery throughout the world, the dental hygienist is now evolving into a key healthcare specialist. This program paves a new direction in specialized roles to include advanced clinicians, knowledgeable and effective motivators combined with recognizing that prevention is our only tool to optimal oral and general health. Each module of this course will focus on a changing dynamic in hygiene therapy introducing the latest technologies offered in today’s prevention strategies. Patients today are more informed of their options as they live longer and fuller lives. The participants will learn and share their ideas in exploring the skills necessary to become the dental hygienist of the next decade.

       12:00  – 3:00 PM  - Building a Successful Prevention Strategy for                 High Risk Adults  (3 CE) 
This course will provide the participants (dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants) with a strategy in their work setting to prepare their older adults to identify factors which place them at greatest risk for oral health diseases. Following an overview of the etiologies that cause dry mouth, xerostomia and erosive dental patterns, it will be necessary to formulate an appropriate treatment plan which includes frequent maintenance and selective agents that restore the necessary components lost from inadequate salivary function. Today’s older adults are the first generation to sustain their natural dentition throughout their lifespan. This presents significant challenges to the dental professional when medical and emotional factors produce loss of dental function and recurrent dental caries. Our role is to review the current evidence-based research that supports a highly successful therapy for all adult patients.
